Weekly Menu 7/7-7/11


This is the second week where I've found many of my dinner inspirations from Pinterest. I figured I spent probably close to 15 hours pinning all of my old recipes from Reader, that the absolute least I could do was finally go through and make some of them.

My usual method of recipe choosing for the week includes sitting down with a large 3 ring binder where I have used dividers to section off the recipes. Basically, Pinterest before Pinterest existed. The plus to Pinterest is I can just choose the recipes immediately on visual appeal. The downside is I need to click through to get to the recipe before being able to write down the ingredients.

One thing that isn't from Pinterest is my Recipe Swap meal, which I also thought I should mention, now happens on a monthly basis instead of bi-weekly. Since I have the patience of a small child, I'm still making my recipe right away.

Sunday - Recipe Swap Meal with Fries

Monday - Summer Veggie Tortellini Salad

Tuesday - Cheddar Jalapeno Chicken Burgers with Corn Fritters and Stuffed Peppadew Peppers

Wednesday - Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork Tacos with Broccoli Slaw 

Thursday - Summer Peach and Balsamic Pizza (me) and Pepperoni Pizza (Tom)

For breakfast this week I finally decided to use up the 6-pack of vanilla-flavored breakfast shakes before they expire in August. I'm not really a fan of supplementing meals with drinks, but it was coming in handy when I started work at 7 am and didn't have the stomach or the time to even think of eating that early.

After doing the military diet, I found that I feel much more full if I only graze on things for lunch. This week is cheese, crackers and grapes.
